Eat and Drink in Cologne
Here you will find more than 3000 pubs, cafes and restaurants serving everything.
Don't forget to try one of the typical brewhouses, where "Kölsch" is not only spoken (the dialect is called kölsch as well) but drunk as well, and where a friendly and open-minded atmosphere will make you feel at home.
Starred and crowned chefs can be found just as readily in the hotels and restaurants of Cologne as experts in "Kölsche Kaviar" (black pudding with onions), "Halve Hahn" (a rye bread roll with semi-mature Gouda, onions and mustard), "Hämmche" (boiled knuckle of pork) or "Soorbrode" (a beef dish).
This Michelin-starred French restaurant has been an institution in Cologne’s fine dining scene for over 20 years, offering a très creative gourmet cuisine and a wine list to match.
Hanse Stube, set in the Excelsior Hotel Ernst next to the Cologne Cathedral, serves haute cuisine for haute prices. Chef de cuisine Bernhard Stütze prepares innovative French fare combined with regional flavors; the menu offers dishes such as marinated asparagus, sautéed gambas and scallops with wild herbal salad and pine nut vinaigrette...
Right next to the Cologne Cathedral, you’ll find another traditional restaurant. Housed in a former brewery, Früh am Dom serves good old-fashioned German food on three different levels. Whether you are looking for traditional cuisine, a breath-taking location overlooking the roofs of Cologne, a stylish hotel in a central location or a conference room - the FRÜH Team is looking forward to welcoming you in our premises.
